A murdered man is found on a train, and the chief suspect is a lady of status. The French police have to do a bit of work to figure out whodunnit in this light mystery.
I found that the storyline focused more on the human aspects of the characters rather than the mystery. It was predictable as well, but it was still a good listen.
The readers were mostly good, with a few rough chapters at the start. Overall a good story.
